10.04.22 - Ocean-Atmosphere Mashup: A Recipe for Climate Predictions
What happens when scientists cook up a new recipe for understanding the workings of our planet? That’s what two teams studying Earth’s oceans and atmosphere decided to find out—with help from visualization experts in the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division and the agency’s high-performance computing (HPC) resources.

09.29.22 - GMAO and NCCS Provide Forecasts for 10 NASA Field Campaigns
This year, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) are providing near real-time atmospheric weather and chemistry forecasts for 10 NASA field campaigns — the largest number of supported campaigns since 2017.

09.23.22 - Scientists Trace High-Energy Particles Back to Sun's Plasma
Scientists may have discovered how and when high-energy particles that bombard Earth and other objects emerge from violent environments such as the Sun's atmosphere. The new research, based on simulations run on supercomputers at the NAS facility and other supercomputing centers, may lead to better predictions of the origin of solar energetic particles and improve forecasting models of space weather events, a key goal of NASA and other agencies and governments around the globe.

09.23.22 - Meteor Hunt: New Research Reveals the Life and Death of a Space Rock
New research by an astronomer at the SETI Institute and NASA Ames tells a 2008 meteorite’s origin story. To understand the wide track of meteroid fall patterns from asteroid 2008 TC3, the NAS Division’s Darrel Robertson, in support of the Asteroid Threat Assessment Project at Ames, performed computer modeling to decode this pattern.

9.21.22 - ICCFD11 Proceedings Now Availabler
Proceedings of the ICCFD11 Conference are now available. Co-hosted by the NAS Division, the 11th International Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics (ICCFD) was held on the island of Maui July 11-15. Researchers and experts around the world shared innovative new tools and CFD research advancing our understanding of complex flow physics.
